Personal Description:

As a *Super Tutor,* I achieve results fast. In 2017 my results were *outstanding* at all levels with the highlight being 100% of students achieving grades A*-B at A-Level, with several *students improving by 5 grades*. Director of Yorkshire Tuition, with 100% QTS Pass rates, 5 star reviews, and a child centred approach to GCSE and IGCSE, I am the premier tutor in York.

My techniques enable students to build confidence, and achieve excellent results. As an experienced Maths teacher and tutor, with over 12 years working in top schools, my tutees regularly achieve success way beyond their own perceived ability. It is possible for anyone to learn Maths and get excellent grades with the right tutor. A top Maths brain is not the only requirement to being an outstanding teacher and I am regularly called in to help students whom have had a poor tutor for years and not seen significant results. Tutoring requires a deep understanding of the curriculum, knowledge of how to instil confidence and a mastery of how students learn. Getting top grades is possible given dedication, commitment and the knowledge of how to get there.

As an expert in teaching IGCSE, GCSE and A-level Maths I achieve outstanding results. I teach all Key stages and prepare students for SATS and Entrance exams. I help adult learners with various different requirements, including NVQ qualifications, PGCE Numeracy exams. For those students wanting to pass QTS tests I have a 100% pass rate. I teach numeracy skills for pre-interview tests such as Accountancy/ Private and Public companies.

I am fully qualified Mathematics Teacher with a Bachelors and Masters Degree, PGCE, CRB / DBS certificate. I am an 'outstanding' teacher per OfSTED criteria and observation and as a full time tutor I am now able to fully dedicate myself to my tutees whilst keeping up to date with all the latest teaching innovations. I usually work from my home in Dunnington, but can be more flexible for daytime tutoring. Individual tutoring, or small group courses are available.

I am no ordinary maths teacher. I know how to get results, and more importantly I know how to give you confidence in your ability. You will be surprised what you can achieve. Feel free to contact me with any questions or to enquire about my availability.

Tutoring Experience:

Outstanding Mathematics teacher (since 2005) - Primary, Secondary, Entrance Exams, GCSE, IGCSE, A-level, SATS, Reception to Adult.

Lead Professional in Mathematics department at Bingley Grammar School.
Mathematics Teacher at Fulford School.
Employed by the best schools to boost their grades on a consultancy one-to-one basis.

Tutoring Approach:

-Assessment for Learning - Making sure students really understand the topics through discussion and thorough questioning. Unlike many teachers, I do not accept students saying that they understand, they need to prove it. This ensures they can answer the exam questions longer term.
-Student centred.
-Fun.
-Engaging.
-Confidence building.
-I believe everyone can learn Mathematics with the right approach.
